Background

Higher Level Teaching Assistant status is achieved by undergoing a three-day preparation for assessment course delivered by an approved Provider of Preparation (e.g. Hampshire Teaching and Leadership College), followed by assessment by a Regional Provider of Assessment. The three-day course is coaching in preparation of material for assessment, it is not training for the HLTA role. There is an application process for places.

Cost

The cost of gaining HLTA status is £810:

  • £360 for the three-day course
  • £450 for the assessment

Eligibility

Teaching Assistants must have specified qualifications in literacy and numeracy and be able to write about how they have worked during the past year one-to-one, with a group and with a whole class (the latter without a teacher present).  

Qualifications

Applicants must have qualifications in numeracy and literacy.  See Required Qualifications for details. Candidates without these qualifications can take access tests. These tests are to gain access to HLTA. They do not lead to a qualification and can be used for no other purpose. See the HNAP Level 2 Access tests for full information.
